Warm Curtains in a Cool Living Room?

Good Questions

Q: Help! When we first moved into our unit 3 years ago I painted a blue feature wall and went with greys/silvers as the base color for furniture, planning on splashing bright colours in through cushions, etc. We're now fiiiiinally doing some minor renovations — pulling out a wall, tearing up the tiles and fake floorboards and polishing the real ones underneath. I bought some curtains from Anthropologie. They're a lot creamier than I anticipated, and now all of my individual purchases don't quite fit together. Do I re-paint the walls in a color closer to the background color in the curtains? Or loose the curtains entirely? I think I want to lose the blue wall anyway, because it darkens the room… suggestions please!
